Summer of tech

The Trade Me team attended a very cool annual event this week - Summer of Tech's meet and greet in Wellington. 

Summer of Tech is not-for-profit organisation that started back in 2006. They give New Zealand's emerging tech talent the opportunity to get roles at technology companies around New Zealand.

Summer of Tech students interview for paid roles at tech companies and (as the name suggests) work there over the summer. A number of them go on to get full time roles.

We're proud to have a number of Summer of Tech alumni with us at Trade Me and we're looking forward to the 'speed dating' round with the next crop of students this month.
